We have to admit, we were over joyed to see Factory Entertainment's Master of the Universe scaled prop collection in the case during Toy Fair this year. In general, MOTU seems to be making a big comeback in the last two year with an assortment of producers making figures. What we haven't seen until now are those iconic weapons.
The artwork on the box itself is amazing. The box uses the original logo and background from the Mattel original carded figures. It also incorporates some nice effects from the show including the lightening around the Power Sword and the green glow emanating from the Havoc Staff. We love the little touch on the back of the box featuring Castle Greyskull for He-Man and Snake Mountain for Skeletor.
The weapons themselves and the medium are magnificent. Made out of metal instead of resin, you can really feel the weight to these things. They also carry an impressive metallic finish in both chrome and a purple hue. The Power Sword is a faithful recreation of that iconic blade and carries impressive detail all the way down to the grip. The Havoc Staff has immense detail in the skull topper, even capturing the teeth.
We cannot emphasize how awesome these pieces are and can only hope we see the line expanded in the future. Check out our gallery for more images on the set. You can preorder yours now and expect them to start shipping soon. Click here to get your Power Sword and Havoc Staff.
